2020-10-19 A serious cycling trip today 1 month ago
I have a few days holiday and today I decided to work on cycling a bigger distance. In the end I cycled 90 kilometers (on my cycle computer) or 84 kilometers (according to the GPS). Both are fine with me, a good test of doing such a distance. I tried to get routes with lots of long straight paths, which are nice on my recumbent. That worked out ok. I cycled home - De Bilt - Bunnik - Odijk - Werkhoven - Cothen - Wijk bij Duurstede - Amerongen - Elst - Veenendaal - Renswoude - Scherpenzeel - Woudenberg - Zeist - De Bilt - home. Average speed according to my cycling computer which will stop measuring when I pause: 20.60 kilometers per hour. Top speed was 47 kilometers per hour on a long downhill stretch near Zeist.
